The space

Escape to the Island on a serene ferry ride less than 15 miles from Seattle (Fountleroy), Tacoma (Pt. Defiance), or Southworth terminals to Vashon Island, the Nantucket of the West Coast, where another world awaits you – a place for relaxation, entertainment, friendly people and nature.

Discover Summerhurst Retreat, a 3,000 sq. ft. custom-built Lindal cedar luxury entertainment home with beautiful and expansive views of Puget Sound (ocean), the Cascades (mountains), alongside modern design custom amenities!

At Summerhurst Retreat, we pride ourselves in cleanliness, quality, modern spa-like design, and entertainment. We’ve personally stayed in many vacation homes, and researched what would make an exceptional rental home.

The home is spacious with 3 floors, 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with vaulted ceilings and classic North-West architecture. The central feature in the home is a 22-foot soaring cathedral ceiling encompassing the main room and upstairs loft. Unwind in the master bedroom (king bed) with a spa-like, modern bathroom (2 sinks, a 2-person shower and indulgent soaker tub) with warming towel bars. Relax in the comfortable guest bedroom (queen bed) and have the kids in the loft (4 twin beds), each room with its own en suite bathroom. Downstairs, there is an office with desk, computer, printer and twin bed. All beds have comfortable memory foam mattresses, with high-thread count cotton linens and high-quality towels throughout. The house comfortably sleeps 9, however, we can accommodate up to 12 (with high-quality SoundAsleep Dream Series air beds - 2 queen and 2 twin). A serene color palette of white walls, fir and maple wood, exposed wood beams, and black slate tile will remind you of relaxation in a high-end massage studio.

The ground floor has the garage, the main foyer entrance, a small office / bedroom, a powder bathroom (.5), the guest bedroom, and the guest bathroom w/ shower tub. The second floor has the kitchen, dining area, living area, main room, master bedroom, master bath, and wrap around deck. The third floor has a loft bedroom and bath.

Kitchen and Dining: Prepare gourmet meals for a group and host your events in our modern, well-equipped, and spacious gourmet kitchen and dining areas (serves 12). It truly is a chef’s delight! The kitchen has four large workstations, quartz surfaces, quality cooking accessories and loads of brand new stainless steel appliances (Subzero refrigerator/freezer w/ ice, Subzero 100+ bottle wine fridge, Dacor electric double ovens, microwave and warming drawer, Miele 5-burner induction range with exceptional hood and a roomy Miele dishwasher). Enjoy the oversized farm house style sink with industrial faucet sprayer, restaurant-style open shelving look, and all the necessary table-top accessories and appliances. We’ve spared no luxury, from including a professional Kitchen-Aid stand mixer to Reed and Barton silverware for a modern, elegant table setting. We have a 2-burner propane BBQ (during dry months: approx. May through October). The formal Saarinen marble table seats 6, a kitchen banquette table seats 4, a small table can sit 2-3, and the huge island has 4 tall bar stools. Enjoy the food and the view as your guests will be impressed and well catered in this restaurant-like dining experience.

Entertainment features: The property has many entertainment features, including: a brand new 6-person premium Sundance hot tub overlooking Puget sound, a large deck with chairs, an indoor gas fireplace, an outdoor wood burning fireplace and seating area, wireless Dish satellite internet (Wi-Fi), two 32-inch flat screen TVs, one 50" flat screen TV with Nintendo Wii system (4 controllers and lots of games), 200+ channels (Dish), board games and cards, a bocce ball court, horse shoes, a dart board, a thorough collection of books for your reading enjoyment. For those who enjoy gardening or taking walks, take in the Japanese-inspired gardens with maple, pine and magnolia trees, flowering shrubs and plants. Enjoy the fireplace by the trees and share drinks and stories with friends. Inside or outdoors, there is plenty of room for entertaining or just relaxing and getting away from it all.

Gather together for enjoyable conversations. We have many areas to share memories together, including the main dining table, bar and dining areas, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, as well as luxurious seating conveniently located throughout the home.

Enjoy the divine heated floor tiles in the kitchen, dining room, and master bathroom. The home is filled with hardwood and slate tile flooring, vaulted ceilings, skylights, wood doors and moldings, and well-appointed, complete furnishings throughout. We decorated the home to have a peaceful, inviting, low-allergen, Zen-like retreat setting.

Lots of sun and light: Enjoy the amazing views of the Puget Sound and feel the warmth of the sunlight (South East facing) from the expansive 2-story cathedral main room, the many windows and skylights in the dining area, foyer, and bedrooms. Use the amazing loft for yoga or meditation space overlooking the ocean as you watch the sunrise each morning. We have upgraded the home to dimmable soft-white LED lighting, so you will surely find the ambiance relaxing as you can set a custom mood.

The home is on 0.75 acres in a quiet, private area of Vashon, so you will have restful experiences here. Bald eagles, deer, and many small songbirds make the outdoor space here peaceful and serene, as you enjoy watching the ships and sailboats pass through the shipping lane. This is a great chance to limit your use of technology and enjoy the time with your family, friends, a yummy home-cooked meal, or a good book. This home was designed to be a welcoming oasis, for those wanting the complete designer-home experience, so pick up some delicious gourmet groceries from Vashon Thriftway or your fresh fruit and vegetables from the Saturday Farmer Market, and come stay for a while!

For those wishing to escape the city, there is nothing better than Vashon. Since it is only traveled by ferry, it has a truly island experience with a friendly local culture. It definitely has a small-town community spirit. The island of Vashon is just 15 minutes ferry ride away from major cities, but feels like you are on a relaxing island getaway. It offers a gourmet grocery with excellent wine offerings, specialty shops, bookstores, fine restaurants, art galleries, bakeries, a movie theater and more. Please strike up a conversation with the locals as many people are sociable here.

Adventures: If you are into cycling, Vashon is a great getaway to log in miles of road-based wilderness or coastline. If you enjoy watersports, you can paddle around the island (Kayak rentals available at store) or enjoy fishing or crabbing on the pier. There are many hikes to enjoy and many birds and animals to see. Several accessible beaches are within driving distance. The best sand beach (KVI beach) that has parking is about a 12 minute drive. Take a day trip to downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park and Mount Saint Helens, or the many museums in the general region. The home guide contains many activities to do, so simply bring some clothing layers and appropriate shoes and you should find many activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Wildlife: Abundant wildlife, including small birds, hawks, bald eagles, deer, raccoons and the friendly neighborhood dogs visit the property and area. You truly feel like you are retreating in nature. If you are a gardener, you will enjoy almost year-round flowers from the property.

It is time to unwind, pamper yourself, reconnect with nature and each other and truly experience what a vacation should be. You deserve to have a relaxing, breathtaking, and luxurious vacation rental experience, and so we hope that you book with us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Summerhurst! Communication was great from pre-booking to during our stay to after check-out. The home itself is beautiful and very comfortable -- it suited our needs very well for a family get-away, with six adults and one baby all being able to have separate rooms and bathrooms. The views are incredible, and all of the amenities (hot tub, outdoor fire place, games) are a great asset to this property. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer to enjoy everything even more! A few comments aimed at future guests -- please don't take these as complaints, just consideration points to help anyone in the future to be certain this is the right place for them: 1) As other guests have mentioned, there are A LOT of rules. It does take some of the relaxation out of your stay when you are constantly worried you might be doing something wrong. 2) Some of the rooms have no window coverings, so if you can't sleep in daylight, you need to consider this. We came prepared with eye masks for sleeping in the loft area, which we expected to be very bright due to the open concept layout. However, we had planned for our baby niece to sleep in the downstairs office, and this room did not have window coverings. Definitely not the best situation when you are trying to get a baby to go to sleep before it's dark and hopefully stay asleep as long as possible in the morning. We ended up moving the baby and her parents to the master suite where the baby slept in the very spacious bathroom. All's well that ends well, but do ask questions of the host before booking to make sure that all of the rooms will suit your needs accordingly. 3) This was our first visit to Vashon Island, so we don't have a point of comparison as far as what might be the BEST location, but do keep in mind that Summerhurst is about a 25 minute drive from either ferry terminal, and about 20 minutes from town. You can walk around the neighborhood streets, but there is not much you can do on foot. You will need to drive to get to more scenic areas to walk or hike, if that's your thing. But the property is so nice, you may not want to leave! Thanks once again; we truly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely consider coming back if we are ever on Vashon again!

We greatly enjoyed our stay. The house and views are beautiful. The layout is perfect for two couples since there are two separate master bedrooms and kids can sleep in the loft. Having bathrooms on each floor including the loft was a huge plus. We enjoyed grilling and sitting on the deck. The house is very organized with the best kitchen I've probably ever had at a vacation rental. Would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of Vashion and get some R&R!

This is a beautiful house in a quiet, stunning location. The kitchen has great appliances for cooking and the bedrooms were comfortable. One of the showers was non functional and the fire place did not work. Also, the house instruction manual was very long, detailed, and a bit overwhelming.

This is a beautiful property with amazing natural light. The kitchen is perfect for cooking for groups so everyone can congregate around the bar. Highly recommend a weekend outside of Seattle with friends and family.
